Just wondering if anyone has ran with and without a hood, if so what kind of performance difference did you see.

Faster with the hood, and it didn't spray fuel all over.

I have a hood on order but decided to go to an 1/8 mile track just to see what the car would run since it is all new. It ran a 5.98 at 113.6 and was just wondering how much the lack of hood might have slowed the car. I would NEVER run the 1/4 without a hood.

Did you lift? Cause to me that MPH seems a little slow for the ET.

hood is not a big deal the problem is it pulls the fuel out of the carb an air cleaner is needed if no hood

I have an air cleaner on it. No I didn't lift, I am kind of wondering if the lack of hood slowed the mph some.

Hey, I ran without a hood while testing new stuff.
I didn't have the room so we did some testing while waiting for delivery.
It did run slower and blew fuel on the windshield, but when trying new intakes, carbs,
you do what you have to do??
